Easter Eggs & Pom Pom Tails

Finding those pretty pastel cellophane wrapped marshmallow eggs, or, if we were lucky, actual real dyed hard boiled Easter eggs, is a fun and special memory of mine. Actually that memory is alive and well today at my house. When my family can get together for Easter I still have an Easter Egg hunt and a new, fairly recent addition, is an egg toss too. Even though we are are long in the tooth now we still love the hunt and besides it keeps us young. During the toss everyone is just laughing like crazy and having a grand ol' time. When I was little and a Brownie, (prelude to Girl Scouts), all the troops in town had an annual Easter Egg hunt at this little brick ivy covered cottage that sat on a bluff over looking the river. Oh..what a grand time it was, everyone on their mark and ready set for the scramble to find the golden egg that meant you got the big chocolate Easter bunny. Easter before last I was thrilled and fortunate to have my precious Boo (only the cutest grand-daughter in the whole wide world) and her family spend Easter with us. She was a little dubious of that strange looking thing in a white furry suit but it wasn't long before she warmed up to him and all the fun of the Easter egg hunt in the church gardens.




We woke up to a big surprise that April Easter morning..... a snow fall that blanketed the beautiful blooming azaleas and that glorious spring green thick grass.


Fortunately by early afternoon all the snow had melted and the family egg hunt and throw was on.These wonderful memories inspired me this week to get out my paints and create some fun gift tags for you. Each little bunny has a different colored vintage pom pom tail and the Easter eggs are different colors. Only this little bunny knows where the egg is hidden. These cute tags are charming to add to a special Easter gift, goodie bag or makes a fun tie on to a Easter basket. You can find them here in the boutique or here, or here in my new Etsy shop.



Here'a hoping all your snow has melted and you can see the new grass, sweet daffodils and the sweet pansy faces in your neck of the woods.

your tags are very nice! I remember taking my children on egg hunts, was always cold, so many kids but a fun tradition. if my grandchildren are here we also have a hunt..and we hide their baskets. those pictures of your surprise snow are beautiful and its even more beautiful when the snowy surprise melts away quick! its been beautiful here for the last few days. cleaning up the yard feels good and its nice to see some of summer creeping out. I know we will have cold and snow again but at least we are at the end of it.

Save an Easter egg for me... ;))

Meanwhile, India 2008 is coming to its end at Blogtrotter. I know you’re getting a bit tired, but there are still some marvels to come ;). Look forward to reading your comments! Enjoy and have a great weekend!

The shot of the azaleas in the snow is terrific. Easter is such a magical time, everything being reborn! Happy Spring!

HalfCrazy said...

Aww, the memories. We also had them those Easter Egg hunts too, about years ago. There would be chocolate balls, eggs with leche flan inside them. So much fun, hahaha! But we don't have bunnies like you guys do!

Hmm, we don't have snow to worry about in here!

Love those tags! Your post brought back such memories of egg hunting as a girl in Virginia. Yes, our family still does the same as yours and now with three little grandsons!

Lovely post, Lynn.
